City Opera House Policies:

Children Policy: Infants and newborns are not permitted. Everyone attending must have a ticket and be able to sit in a seat. Children under 5 years of age are not permitted unless otherwise advertised. Parents will be asked to remove their child/children if they are causing disruptions or are unable to sit quietly.

Cameras & Recording Devices: Cameras and other recording devices (audio, video and still) are not permitted in the auditorium and may be confiscated if used during a performance. If brought into the facility, cameras may be checked in at the Hayden Box Office in the main entrance. Photos taken by camera phones may be deleted by City Opera House ushers or staff. Patrons repeatedly taking photos or recording may have the recordings deleted and be asked to leave.

Cell Phone and Personal Electronic Device Policy: The use of cell phones, laptops, and other electronic devices is strictly prohibited. Cellular phones and other devices can cause distractions to performers and other patrons and will be confiscated.  Please turn all devices off! Placing phones on vibrate is not sufficient, the vibration will be amplified with the acoustics of the City Opera House and can disrupt the performance.

Seating Policy: Every effort is made to start performances at the announced hour unless there is an unavoidable delay. For the consideration of our patrons and performers, anyone arriving while a performance is in progress will be seated only at times designated by the artist and their management. Late arriving patrons may be directed to seats in the rear of the auditorium until intermission.

Smoking: City Opera House is a non-smoking, tobacco free facility.

PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY STATEMENT: City Opera House prides itself on offering a diverse selection of arts entertainment for the residents of Michigan. Not all productions may appeal to or be appropriate for every person or for all ages.

Grand Traverse Dyslexia Association

Star Dr. Nathan Reed, Instructor Jessica Mason Froehlich

Grand Traverse Dyslexia Association was born out of an expressed need in our community in 1985 for tutors to help students struggling to learn to read. We now employ 25 tutors, serving an average of 125 students per year. The mission of Grand Traverse Dyslexia Association is to provide educational, charitable, and supportive services to individuals with dyslexia. Dyslexia is a disorder in children and adults who, despite conventional classroom experience, fail to attain language skills of reading, writing, and spelling commensurate with their intellectual abilities. Without remedial help, children with dyslexia, or other language difficulties are at risk for failure in school. Grand Traverse Dyslexia Association provides one-on-one tutoring in reading and spelling, training to tutors and teachers, and community education to enhance awareness of the problems faced by people with dyslexia.

Jubilee House

Star Abby Byar, Instructor Mel Kiogima

Daybreak and it is really cold and wet. The tent flap blew open again and my sleeping bag is wet, no wonder I am cold. Better get moving and walk into town for breakfast. After that I'll walk to Jubilee House, maybe they will have another tarp or a blanket. They generally help me with underwear and warm socks or hoodie. A hot shower and clean clothes will feel real good. I have to get my good clothes from my tote to clean up for my interview today. Don't know what I would do without Jubilee House storing my clothes!"

Each weekday about 40 people choose to enter Jubilee House for a visit, for help, Internet access, conversations, to telephone a friend or family member, get their mail, and to relax in the safety of the House. Alone, in a tent in the woods, means you never totally relax to sleep; it's not safe.

"At Jubilee I know I am welcomed, safe, and a volunteer will be willing to talk to me and accept me as I am. It is so nice to be treated like other people and be respected!" Help us help others regain their dignity and find a purpose to live, donate to Jubilee House!
